Product Description

Product Description


This debut by the L.A.-based quartet is a hybrid of explosive rap-metal, politically incendiary lyrics, and wide-ranging cultural influences. The members are of Armenian descent, but their diverse stylistic background transcends easy cultural labeling. Singer Serj Tankian's throaty roar competes with any mosh-pit rocker around, but his real trademark is his emotional wail and refreshingly melodic singing, especially on songs such as "Spiders" and the condemnatory "P.L.U.C.K." Guitarist Daron Malakian, bassist Shavo Odadjian, and drummer John Dolmayan lock in tight on the capricious arrangements of "Know," "Ddevil," and "CUBErt." Their musical diversity runs wonderfully wild on "Sugar" and "Suggestions" with dizzying shifts of style and intensity. The tracks "Peephole" and "War?" reveal the band at perhaps its eclectic best, with vaguely Eastern European-sounding guitar riffs, passionate battle cries, and samples provided by legendary hip-hop producer Rick Rubin. --Mark McCleerey

5.0 out of 5 stars Not like any other........... June 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm a SOAD fan,i have to say,each of their albums i have are great.Its hard to find bands that are bold enough to be different in the music world.I'm not that type of person who can accept any type of music easily,i'm the type that expects the music to capture,not only my ears but also my heart.I believe that the heart brings out many feelings.When i first listened to this album,it did not capture my attention that much,but soon, as i slowly listened to each and every of their songs,something grew in me,it was a mix of craziness,anger,creepiness and i don't know what else.i don't mean to exaggerate but these miscellaneous feelings exploded till it popped out of my mind,"GENIUS!".From SUITE PEE to PLUCK,each and every song was different and beautiful,the lyrics in some songs may sometimes be repetitive,but who cares,just enjoy the freakin music!Songs regarding issues on religion,war,drugs,politics and other issues that i believe are important for us to listen and understand.The lyrics in most of the songs makes you think.Usually, most of the time, when i listen to bands like KoRn,Mudvayne,Deftones,Slipknot or any other metal or hard rock bands,their music makes me 'feel' than think,what do i mean by 'feel',i'm trying to say that their music brings out a lot of feelings out of me.But when i listen to SOAD,its a different story,their music makes me feel and at the same time think.
FAV songs:all except for cubert(this song is just okay to me.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Standing above their peers May 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
In the general realm of rock music, I think System of a Down's 1998 eponymous debut would stand in the realm of 4-4.5 stars. However, in the realm of nu-metal, where they are often unfortunately placed, this release is not only light years ahead of any other debut (with the possible exception of Rage Against the Machine - also sometimes lumped in with their neandertal nu-metal peers), but way ahead of anything else released at the time. With swarms of mediocre bands polluting the airwaves in the late 1990's, it was refreshing to see a new and interesting take on a genre that was old hat almost immediately out of the gates. Shunning the aimless anger of Korn and Limp Bizkit, System of a Down focused their lyrics and, more importantly, singer Serj Tankian's unique vocals toward more lofty goals: the education of the American population to the wrongs not just in America and whoever RATM was interested in that week, but to the sufferings of their own people, the Armenians.
That's not to say that the album has a heavy-handed political agenda, though. Yes, the lyrics are politically motivated, but in the era of fluff like Limp Bizkit's "Rollin'," it's more than welcome. The opening riffs of "Suite-Pee" hit hard and the band rarely lets up, except for the introspective hit single "Spiders."
For profane, unrelentingly angry nu-metal, you could turn anywhere and find what you're looking for. But if you want to channel that anger and energy for something better than personal vengeance, System of a Down is the band for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars And Thus it Began... April 23 2004
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
I believe this incredible debut to be System of a Down's 2nd best album (Toxicity being, of course the best) to date, as well as one of the greatest debut albums in history, second only to Disturbed's "The Sickness". So great is this CD that each song deserves it's own commentary.
1. Suite-Pee 9/10 A great opener for a great album, heavy and fast.
2. Know 10/10 The second best song on the CD more fast beats and heavy guitars.
3. Sugar 9/10 Another upbeat, almost (and again I say ALMOST) rap-like song, featuring some terrific bass.
4. Suggestions 9/10 Less upbeat overall, but does have some very heavy parts. Very catchy acoustic intro.
5. Spiders 9.5/10 Slowest song on the album, but still awesome.
6. DDevil 8/10 Upbeat guitars, maniacal vocals, strange lyrics. Typical System of a Down
7. Soil 9/10 Another great, heavy song with fairly deep lyrics about losing a friend to suicide.
8. War? 10/10 Great guitars and effects. Lyrics ridiculing religious war.
9. Mind 7/10 My least favorite song on the album, but only because it is rather unfocused and a bit too long. Some great death metal influences though.
10. Peephole 8/10 A bit spooky...sounds rather like carnival music during the verses
11. CUBErt 10/10 Great song! At less than a two minutes, however, it is way to short.
12. Darts 8/10 Heavy, but not overly imaginative.
13. P.L.U.C.K. 15/10 I give it a 15 because it is just that good! Best song on the album and possibly SOAD's best to date (through "Steal This Album!")

5.0 out of 5 stars This cd rocks! April 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is an awesome album. One of their best! Sugar and Suite-Pee are some of their best songs on the album.
1.Suite-Pee 10/10. Cool lyrics and pretty fasy. Nice opening song.My 2nd favorite on the album.
2.Know 9/10.Great song. Loud vocals. Cool song.
3.Sugar 10/10. My favorite song. I like playing this song on my guitar.It's really easy. I love this song! I don't know why a whole bunch of people don't like this song.
4.Suggestions 8/10. This song is funny. Especially the high pitched voice near the end.
5.Spiders 9/10. Slow, but very good. I love the guitar solo in the beginning.
6.DDevil 9/10. This song is funny too. Too bad it's so short.
7.Soil 10/10. This song is fast. Great song! This is another great song on the album.
8. War? 9.5/10 Cool intro. Good song. Nice guitar riffs. Cool chorus too.
9.Mind 7/10. I don't really like this song.Some of it is good but it's pretty bizarre.
10.Peephole 9/10. Good song. It sounds like its about getting high. I like the intro it kind of shows you whats in the song.
11.CUBErt 8/10 this song is pretty good but kind of weird.
12.Darts 9/10 Its pretty weird but i like it.
13.P.L.U.C.K. 10/10. Awesome closing song! I love it.
Over all, if you don't have this album you should buy it! It's totally awesome.You should buy Toxicity too.

Some people think this band sucks and that it's not metal. I don't think that it's real metal either, but just because it's not metal doesn't mean it sucks. Read more

I'm not their biggest fan, but this is a pretty good album. They mix the politics of "Rage Against The Machine", with a sound that's just as aggressive. Read more

System of a Down is defintely not a GREAT band and is obviously over-rated. The best song on the album is "Sugar" and the rest is O.K. material, nother super special. Read more
